Assignment: Generosity and Peacemaking

How do Wink’s ideas about privilege and power compare to Johnson’s, Ehrenreich’s, and Bader-Saye’s ideas? [This question casts a wide net; please feel free to write about the ideas in which you are most interested.] How are they different? How might you integrate Bader-Saye’s ideas about the risks of hospitality, generosity and peacemaking with Wink’s theology of social transformation [as represented in his quotation above]? How might you use the experiences/stories of the people we have read about/viewed/listened to this semester including all of the following:

the women in Ehrenreich’s Nickel and Dimed,
the characters from your Multicultural Children’s Picture Book
the characters from Hotel Rwanda, Come See the Paradise and El Norte
the characters in If These Walls Could Talk 2

Assignment: Generosity and Peacemaking

Assignment: Generosity and Peacemaking
The Girls Next Door
In your posting please use these stories to illustrate Wink’s view of the connection between social transformation and our commitment to the general welfare–regardless of our social location. Post three questions about how Nickel and Dimed and Following Jesus in a Culture of Fear deal with the focus of this forum and respond to at least four other questions posted by the other members of your cohort.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
